Ok - I received this in an email today and decided that I felt pretty strongly about it, so it's going on my blog. Please be aware that I am not intending this to spark a big debate. It's just something that rubbed me the wrong way and I feel the need to vent about it.
First of all, at this point, I am not for or against either candidate. I have not made a decision who I am voting for. I want to make an informed decision. Who I choose will be based on their stance on issues that I feel strongly about. Both candidates have issues that I agree with and disagree with. I just need to decide which I can deal with and which I can't. The important thing is that I am not basing my decision on what my husband thinks, or what my friends or family think, or by sex or skin color. But there are people out there who will. I am aware that this link only shows one side of this, and that there are other people who will NOT vote for Obama because of his skin color.
So, here's my problem... These people (in the link) have absolutely no idea what's going on. Whether you think Obama is the greatest thing since sliced bread, or you think he doesn't hold a candle to McCain, you should at least be able to back it up. I would never criticize someone for their choice if they are able to stand up for their candidate. But when you don't know where he/she stands on the issues or even who the running mate is, you should not be voting.
Just my 2 cents.
